LSU has announced on its official website that there is “no change in the status” of Saturday’s game between North Texas and the Tigers in Baton Rouge. “LSU officials are monitoring Hurricane Isaac and will assess the impact of the storm after it has passed through Baton Rouge.”
Sadly, according to Weather.com, Isaac is bringing more rain than Katrina and that could really test the rebuilt levee systems in and around New Orleans. The storm has basically decided to stall and sit for a while as it moves inland. Heavy rain is expected in Baton Rouge today and tomorrow with winds as high as 55 mph. By Friday, the chance of rain drops to 60% with scattered thunderstorms. By gameday, the forecast calls for a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms.
The bigger issue, of course, is the damage that might be done in Baton Rouge as the storm passes through.
All our best to those of you going through this. Be safe.
UPDATE — LSU cancelled practice today.
